Gerrans seals overall victory

Simon Gerrans (Team Sky) secured overall victory in the Tour of Denmark after Daniele Bennati (Leopard Trek) failed to pick up the vital bonus seconds and then struggled in the sprint that decided the final stage in Copenhagen.

Bennati need to pull back eight seconds but even lost an intermediate sprint to Gerrans. With Theo Bos (Rabobank) and Sacha Modolo and Manuel Belletti (Colnago-CSF-Inox) taking the top three places in the final sprint, Gerrans won overall by nine seconds, with Michael Mørkøv (Saxo Bank-SunGard) third overall at 29 seconds.

It was Gerrans’ first win of the season, with teammates Alex Dowsett and Dario Cioni also riding well, to finish fifth and sixth.

Nervous final stage

Gerrans set up overall success with a superb time trial on Saturday. He finished fifth behind Richie Porte (Saxo Bank-SunGard) and that meant the started the final stage in yellow.

The 162.4km stage was always going to be a battle of seconds, speed and nerves as Gerrans tried to defend his yellow jersey and Bennati tried to take it. However with other riders and teams keen to fight for the stage victory, Bennati was always facing a difficult task to pick up at least nine of the 16 seconds up for grabs.

Leopard Trek team tried to position Bennati for the first intermediate sprint but Andre Steensen (Saxo Bank-Sungard), Lasse Bochman (Glud & Marstrand) and Kristian Sobota (Christina Watches) formed an early break and were later joined by Jack Bobridge (Garmin-Cervelo) and Asbjorn Kragh Andersen (Danish National).

They were caught before the first sprint after 62km but Gerrans had the speed to beat Bennati on the uphill sprint and so extended his lead to nine seconds.

Another group of seven riders took advantage of the brief lull in racing to move clear and they managed to open a two-minute gap as the race covered laps of the course that will be used in September’s world championship. The break cleaned up the other bonus seconds at the second intermediate sprint, meaning Bennati would have to win the sprint, with Gerrans out of the top three. It was all or nothing for Bennati.

The break was eventually caught on the circuits near the centre of Copenhagen but Bennati lost any chance of victory when he lost contact with his lead-out train on the final hectic corner before the sprint.

Oscar Freire gave his Rabobank teammate Theo Bos a perfect lead-out, allowing the former track sprinter to get the better of Modolo and Belletti. Bennati finished out of the top ten and had to accept second place overall, nine seconds down on Gerrans.
